UPDATE: Small bomb found in suspicious package in Prescott, Wisconsin

Police in Prescott, Wisconsin, say a small bomb was found inside a suspicious package Sunday.

According to the police department, at 9:55 a.m., officers were notified of a suspicious object located on Campbell Street near the Prescott Post Office.

The area had been evacuated for safety reasons while crews worked to figure out what the object was.

"While this object may look like a firework to some, there is substantial reason to believe it is not," Chief of Police Eric Michaels said.
